Master Bedroom Updates

Master bedroom, almost complete!

I've been working hard on this room over the past couple of months and wanted to share a few of the updates we've made. I find that master bedrooms are easy to be forgotten about when you're in the process of decorating an entire house - mostly because no one sees it but you, so you put all of your time and energy (and money...) into the areas that you entertain in.

But behind our living room and Hadley's room, we spend the most time in our bedroom, and I was sick of looking at a half finished, mish-mash room full of random decor. So one day, I mapped out my game plan, did some online shopping, and started to bring my vision to life.


Nick and I had already painted the room way back when we first moved in - Benjamin Moore's Cedar Key - and thankfully I still love it. I have a bad relationship with paint colors. Don't ask me how many times I've repainted our entryway. I'm also obsessed with our headboard. It's from Target and such a great deal. What I was really struggling with though was what to put above the headboard.

This room drives me nuts in that it is not symmetrical at all. I have a window on one side of the bed and then a dark corner on the other. We needed something above the bed to bring it all together. If you saw my Insta-story a couple of weeks ago, you saw that I was considering a couple pieces of art, but neither of them just seemed right. I ended up going with a picture ledge because I cannot get enough of our newborn photos and just want to use them ALL over the house (so I am).

I used Keepsake because I am the absolute worst at getting frames for my photos and I love love love that they do it all for you - print your photos, frame 'em and deliver them right to your doorstep. And delivery was epically fast, like two days later, which I love because Amazon Prime has ruined me.


Didn't they turn out amazing? I went with the Bristol frames in the 11x14 and can't get over the quality. And ordering them took a whopping 5 minutes, if that. They even have an iPhone app that you can order from! I used their website (because I have serious storage issues on my phone) and it was just overall an awesome experience.

Moving on to beside the beds. Our nightstands are actually $70 dark brown IKEA Hemnes ones that we (Nick) painted white. We also attached new handles because that really does make a world of difference. Topped with lamps from Target, the sweetest picture that makes me smile every night when I'm getting into bed, a delicious smelling candle, a favorite hand cream, and the occasional fresh flowers.


I was also on the hunt for new sheets. I love me some Target/Homegoods/budget finds, but if there is one thing I insist on splurging on, it is sheets. (With an exception to the Costco flannel sheets, because those things are the best.) But I really love a good, crisp sheet set. We went with the Circle Cut set from Serena & Lily and they are goooood. It's part of their luxury bedding range - yes, please - and it seriously feels like you're climbing into a hotel bed every night. It's the little things, right?

It's hard to be able to see the pattern because it's so very neutral and tiny, but I love that the sheets have a little something to them. I also just realized that they have the same pattern in a crib sheet so I'm thinking Hadley girl needs one, too!


I'm really happy with how the room is coming together! I just have a couple more things to change and then it should be dunzo. I want to switch out our ceiling lighting and the wall to the left needs something on it. I'm thinking one of these big signs. Also contemplating a rug for under the bed. What do you guys think? I think it might be nice to break up the carpet a bit. 

Oh, and as a treat to you guys for getting through this monster post, if you want to try out Keepsake framing for yourself, use code KatieElizabeth15 to get 15% off of your order! I highly, highly recommend it - they're awesome!

  2. Love it! It's coming together so nicely! Our master is in desperate need of attention. Maybe I should start with the Ikea dressers I got for our nightstands about ummm, 2.5 years ago? Embarrassing!

  6. You know I LOVE #AllTheNeutrals too! I had an incredibly talented friend that has an etsy shop where she has already created and custom pieces. You should definitely check her out. Her work is beautiful and affordable. Her name is Mollie Hammonds and her shop is SouthMagnoliaMarket on etsy!

  7. It all looks so beautiful & relaxing.
    Question... are those 3 frames held together or propped up there? Sorry - I always fear everything in the world & can just imagine those falling down on your head in the middle of the night or something. haha. Or maybe its just how my luck runs so that's why I envision that.

  8. I love your redesigned master room! We really need to get it done but we're just too busy with other things!

  9. I literally just emailed Ian the info for Keepsake for our 1 year (paper) incase he wants to get crafty. I can't make it any easier for this guy :)

    Looks great! We are moving our master downstairs so we are essentially redoing it all with brand new furniture and everything!

  10. I LOVE your master bedroom! We have very similar style. We have pretty much the same headboard from One Kings Lane and have the same lamps and lamp shades from Target! I love your picture ledge above the bed! I've been struggling with what to hang over ours. And I'm definitely using Keepsake for framed photos! What a great idea and concept!

  11. This looks amazing! We also have the HEMNES style furniture. We painted our TV stand white and it made SUCH a difference. I mean - it just pops now! I love the style of your bedroom and those above-the-bed frames are darling :)

  12. The room looks fantastic! Kudos to you guys for using nightstands that you had and just painting them - you would never know the difference. I say yes to a rug under the bed (we're doing the same thing to break up the carpet), and did you consider a long vertical mirror above the other nightstand? It might kind of mimic a window to make things look more symmetrical.

  14. Your room looks so beautiful and relaxing!! Love all of the details and Hadley's newborn pictures are perfect! I finally convinced Stephen to repaint our room and I'd really like a light tan/grey color - it looks like yours might be that way?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Okay - pinning all of this! Your bedroom setup is similar to what I envision ours to be, but accented with dark woods instead (Stephen needs the dark woods, it seems :) ). The bedding looks so good and polished and I love the pictures above the bed!

  18. I love your master bedroom! So pretty, light and airy! I'm dying for an all-white master in our next house.

  19. I love it but I got to ask - is your whole house white? ;)

    Also, what size is your bed? We have a king and I'm having the darnest time finding a comforter that fits and is cute.

  20. Gorgeous! And Target for the win! I love that we are twinning with our lamps, and you can't go wrong with a nice tufted headboard <3

  25. OMG. I'm obsessed with your bedroom. It looks like the most peaceful place EVER. I can't believe Nick repainted those nightstands. He did a great job. If I brought home that project, Tom would be like "ummm no? I'll definitely screw it up." LOL

  29. LOVE everything you've done! I feel like all the bedrooms in our house are just slightly unfinished. You inspire me. I'll have time to design & decorate when my kids are all in school... in years.... right?!

  30. oh Keepsake sounds awesome! i will definitely keep them in mind for when i get new prints. our master bedroom was definitely the room we did the least work/decor in our last house and i'm hoping with a new bedroom set that will change in the new house. the headboard is gorgeous!

  31. Everything looks great and I LOVE the frames above the bed!! I need to frame a lot of wedding/engagement photos for the new house so I'll definitely check out Keepsake :)
